1. Furniture for each room should be included in your rental agreement.
In order to ensure that guests are comfortable and safe during their stay, the rental agreement should specify what furniture will be provided in each room. This can include beds, sofas, chairs, tables, desks, and any other necessary items. Additionally, renters should include any extra furniture needed for larger groups, such as additional beds or chairs.
2. Make sure you have a sufficient number of beds and chairs to accommodate guests.
The rental agreement should include the maximum occupancy allowed in the unit, so renters can make sure that there is enough seating/sleeping space to comfortably accommodate each guest. For example, if eight people are allowed to stay, ensure that there are eight beds available and adequate seating areas for everyone.
3. Provide adequate storage space for luggage, groceries, and other personal belongings.
Having plenty of hangers and hooks is also important for guests’ convenience; plus, it’s always helpful to provide a dresser or chest of drawers where they can store their clothing and other personal items. Additionally, it’s helpful to provide extra storage bins or shelves for guests to store groceries and luggage while they’re staying in the unit.
4. Determine the amount of light each room needs and provide necessary lighting fixtures/lamps.
Different rooms will require different amounts of light; make sure you have sufficient lighting throughout the rental space so that all areas are well-lit during night-time hours or when guests need to read/work in the bedrooms/living area. This means providing additional lamps or fixtures in certain areas if needed.
5. Include linens and towels for each guest.
Having clean bedding is essential for providing guests with a comfortable experience. Make sure you provide enough sets of linens and towels for each guest, as well as extra blankets or pillows if needed.
6. Ensure that all furniture is clean and in good condition before guests arrive.
Cleaning the furniture in the rental unit is a must before guests arrive. Check to make sure all pieces are free from dust and debris, and any upholstery should be vacuumed or wiped down with a damp cloth. Additionally, check to make sure all of the furniture items are sturdy and in working order.
7. Double-check that all appliances are in working order before guests arrive.
For many rentals, appliances can be one of the biggest selling points; it’s important to make sure that all of the appliances provided are in working order before guests arrive. Check to make sure the oven/stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and other features are functioning properly and that all necessary items (pots, pans, dishes, etc.) are available for guest use.
8. Remember to stock up on essentials like toilet paper, soap, shampoo, etc. for guests' convenience.
Providing basic amenities is key for ensuring a comfortable stay; replenish any bathroom supplies such as toilet paper, towels, and soap before each guest arrives. Additionally, it’s also nice to provide some snacks or beverages as a welcome gift for your guests when they first check in.
9. Provide plenty of hooks and hangers for guest use.
Make sure that there are enough hooks and hangers for guests to hang their coats, jackets, and other items during their stay. Since many rentals lack closet space, it’s important to provide extra storage areas in the form of hooks or wall-mounted racks where guests can store their belongings.
10. Make sure there are no safety hazards in the rental space (exposed wiring, sharp objects, etc.).
It is necessary to check for potential dangers such as exposed wiring, sharp objects, and other potential sources of harm. It is important to inspect the space carefully and take steps to address any hazards that may be present before allowing anyone to occupy the space. This may include unplugging exposed wires, securing potentially hazardous objects out of reach, or taking other appropriate precautions.
